Sitting at the bottom of the points table, all eyes are on Virat Kohli and his squad of Royal Challengers Bangalore. Changing the complexion of the entire innings, in the ongoing clash between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders, the bearded hitter – Moeen Ali made everyone sit on the edge of their seats by scoring 66 runs in 28 balls, smashing 5 fours and 6 sixes.
What a jaw-dropping performance that was from Moeen Ali. Smashing his third IPL century in just 24 balls, Moeen Ali took the Royal Challengers Bangalore to the score of 132/2 in 15.2 overs before Kuldeep Yadav got rid of him in the final ball of his 27-run over. Moeen Ali tried to play a lofted shot but couldn’t time the ball to perfection resulting in his shot being caught by Prasidh Krishna.
The twitterati just can’t stop praising the jaw-dropping knock of Moeen Ali, who came like a thunder and took the scores away with the blow. Have a look at how the twitterati reacted :

Meanwhile, the skipper of Royal Challengers Bangalore, Virat Kohli scored his 5th T20 century. A blistering 66 from Moeen Ali and a stunning century from captain Kohli propels RCB to 213/4 at the end of the first innings. It will be interesting to see if Kolkata Knight Riders are able to chase the runs.
